County Recorders vs. the MERS Machine

Deed keepers say they’ve lost millions to the mortgage industry

*PENNSYLVANIA:  Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Nancy Becker
Recorders generally don’t make headlines, but Becker’s public protests did. (See Below). She says she was thrilled when she received a flood of “You go, girl!” e-mails cheering her on. The mini-movement’s main champions are John L. O’Brien, keeper of land records in Salem, Mass., and Jeff L. Thigpen, the register of deeds in Greensboro, N.C. In April they asked Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who heads a group that’s negotiating with banks over wrongful foreclosures, to press for reform. When O’Brien’s and Thigpen’s letter to Miller made national news, the men began teaching other recorders how to get what they say they’re due.
Counties in Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas have filed suit for back fees. In one of the largest cases, Dallas County sued MERS in October, saying the company owes it as much as $100 million. (Read the full Bloomberg Businessweek story HERE)

Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Nancy Becker is urging registers of deeds across state and the country to withdraw public money from any banks affiliated with the Mortgage Electronic Registry System (MERS), which she claims is undermining the practice of accurate land recording.
"In recent years, mortgages have been assigned and reassigned multiple times, and when a bank or other entity doesn’t properly report these transfers, it makes it very difficult for homeowners to determine who holds their mortgages. It clouds the chain of title, and it’s prohibiting (officials) from recording revenues they should be recording," Becker said.

Great read (above) by national blogger Martin Andelman w/quotes from Marc Dann
....“This case asks court very directly whether the MERS system complies with state law.  If it doesn’t then I’m going to go back and reopen all of the foreclosures alleging that the transfers were invalid,” says Dann without hesitation
*ARKANSAS = Hot Springs County Clerk sues MERS for TAX EVASION 
*FLORIDA = Florida Clerk of Court Sues MERS (HERE)
Oct 31st: Jim Fuller, clerk of Duval County, filed suit against Merscorp Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., claiming civil conspiracy, unjust enrichment, as well as FRAUDulent and negligent misrepresentation. The suit also seeks a hearing to determine the validity of tracking note transfers on the MERS System and a court injunction to prohibit the use of MERS in Florida.
MERS has usurped the rights and privileges of the Florida Clerks of Court by establishing, maintaining and inducing lenders to use its private recording system, which unlawfully interferes and competes with the public recording system,” the suit, filed in state circuit court, reads.

A small Midwest "All-American City" - YOUNGSTOWN OHIO - is now OCCUPIED
Crowds gathered and peacefully protested with no interference from 6 area "Closed" Banks.
JP Morgan Chase was locked-up and closed. They have no need to conduct business on Saturday. J.P. Morgan Chase could care less about their "city" customers' or their weekend financial needs.... moreover they cannot file any FRAUDclosure actions against homeowners on Saturdays.... so why bother to open?  Photo below is courtesy of Business Journal Daily
                                           "Occupy Youngstown"          
Demonstrators cheered and waved signs as speakers denounced the surrounding banks & corporate business practices.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Young and old, black and white -- a diverse crowd -- many of them carrying hand-painted signs, gathered on Central Square at noon today for the Occupy Youngstown protest. ..... elected officials were there -- among them Youngstown Mayor Charles Sammarone, Municipal Clerk of Courts Sarah Brown-Clark and Councilman John Swierz.

U.S. STATE Rep. Robert Hagan, D-Youngstown, was the only elected official to speak:
"The people in these banks," Hagan thundered, gesturing toward the downtown office of First National Bank, "the people up there in the chamber of commerce," he continued, pointing to the 17th floor of the bank building, "they're the ones who started this [class] war. And guess who's going to finish it -- we are!"

As strong winds chilled the crowd....speakers stood on a temporary platform and, one by one, denounced the 1% who control 40% of the nation's wealth. The OHIO FRAUDclosure blogspot author, was a featured speaker. He gave a stirring and impassioned 15 minute speech to an engaged and chanting crowd, which included an introduction to Youngstown based attorney - Bruce Broyles. Attorney Broyles is the brave attorney who submitted a brief, on behalf of OHIO FRAUDclosure and Ohio homeowners, in the landmark Ohio Supreme Court Case US BANK v. Duvall.

With another few thousand supporters, this movement also plans to take to the streets on October 15th in downtown Youngstown, and will stay "until change happens!" This group, like all the others, is not fighting for a single purpose, but shares a sense that "...we are all fighting for the same things"

But OUR right to assemble in New York and be heard on Wall Street....was NOT?
